Bindi has tagged me!
Here's the rules:

1. Grab the nearest book of 123 pages or more.

2. Open it to page 123.

3.Find the first 5 sentences and write them down.

4.Then invite 5 friends to do the same.

Here's the book I am reading at the moment.

"The Year Of The Fog" by Michelle Richmond.

It is a story about the disappearance of six-year-old Emma who vanished from a foggy San Francisco beach while out walking with her soon - to - be - step-mother.

First 5 lines on page 123 are:

"For my brother in Iraq," he explained to me once. Darwin has taken my order so many times I suspect he lives at Java Beach.
"Any good news yet?" he asks, punching up my purchase.
I shake my head. "I have more flyers," I say, setting them on the counter. It's the ninth stack of flyers I've brought to Java Beach - one a week for the past two and a half months.

I am tagging '54 Bomber and Hezzy Magee. Idon't know anyone else that Bindi hasn't already tagged,but feel free to join in.

I've been tagged by Bindi for this one too, but since I just started a new job, I am not currently reading anything. Your book sounds like I would need a couple of boxes of Kleenex beside me if I were reading it. I certainly hope it has a happy ending. I cannot bear to read about terrible things happening to children. They are so precious and innocent (most of the time) it hurts my soul to even think about it. Have a wonderful week, Jo.

I was tagged by Bindi too. I've been preparing for the past few days to post, but my head hurts so much after running into the tree limb I can't quite get myself organized! Your book sounds like one with the word KLEENEX attached. Like Cecile, I can't bear to read about bad things happening to kids. Ugh. So you have to tell me what to do. Read or not?

Love you dear and hope you have a wonderful week.

XO Suze :)
